Exhibition runs February 4th to March 11thIntriguing and haunting, this solo show of porcelain sculpture by Michael Flaherty is a sober examination of resettlement in Newfoundland and Labrador.

During his three months alone in the resettled community of French Cove on the Grey Islands off Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula, Michael Flaherty became fascinated with the remnants of the island’s inhabitants–gravestones, pottery shards and antlers. Flaherty’s porcelain sculptures are a fusion of caribou antler and pottery shard with an interesting twist. The shard portion resembles the decomposing bone while the antler section is surfaced with pottery decoration and pattern. A graduate of NSCAD and University of Regina, Michael Flaherty has maintained an active and diverse ceramics practice for the past ten years. Currently he resides in Corner Brook where he is the sculpture technician at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University.
